    “The history of the taco predates the arrival of Europeans in Mexico. There is actual anthropological evidence that the native people living in the lake region of the Valley of Mexico traditionally ate tacos filled with small fish. At the time of the Spanish conquistadors, Bernal Diaz del Castillo documented the first taco feast enjoyed by Europeans. This meal was arranged by Hernan Cortes for his captains in Coyoacan. It is unclear as to why the Spanish used their word “taco” to describe this native food.”


    “Go out for tacos or make them at home. There are many traditional varieties of tacos.

    Research found that National Taco Day began in 2009. However, we were unable to find the creator of this holiday. ”
